Inspired by real-life student activism, Give ‘em Hell is a new play that retells the final school year leading up to the 2012 closure of Peterborough Collegiate and Vocational School (PCVS).
Written by Peterborough-born, award-winning playwright Madeleine Brown and featuring a cast of eight local teenagers, Give ‘em Hell explores the power of youth activism, the perils of self-discovery and what it costs to stand up for a cause.
The production is presented and produced by Theatre Direct, Prairie Fire, Please, 4th Line Theatre and Peterborough Museum and Archives.
The play will be staged in the former PCVS building, now PACE, and accompanied by an exhibition of archival materials from this monumental turning point in the school’s history.
